One political/technical thought for the day: yes, FOSTA-SESTA is responsible for the #Tumblr diaspora, and it's responsible for causing similar harm at other sites. But don't forget that the corporations hosting these sites have been predatory data miners for years, and were never out to protect their users in the first place.
Federated services like Mastodon show us how the Internet should work: smaller servers, run by actual people, that have real privacy controls. #ByeTumblr
@xmakina Quite true, but the beauty of decentralization is that these instances can exist all around the globe in different countries, yet share the same content to federated servers. It will take the CIA/FBI/etc. a long time to figure out how to wrangle such a decentralized network.
TL,DR: We can adapt faster than they can, and with US-(Any Nation Here) relations strained, extradition and strong-arm tactics won't be nearly so effective.
Bear.community is a 18+ only Mastodon server for bears, chubbies and chasers.
